I've listened to over 500 books and this is one of my very favorites.
If you love strong heroines and are interested in their role in WWII, this is the book for you.

What she once put her entire family in jeopardy and now, years later, her cover is blown. She’s on the run, and the lives of those she holds dear hang in the balance. As only Iris Johansen can do, you won’t see the twists coming.

Narrator was bland and sounded "choppy"
Description of book was incorrect and misleading.
The story was too drawn out.
I don't know why her photographic memory was even mentioned in the description.

It was a fun "feel good" story.
I thoroughly enjoyed the performance and the light hearted plot. Animal stories are so sweet. This would be a good listen for any age.
